Hi! I'm Andrea Díaz Cabezas aka Andrea Galaxina.
I was born in 1986 in Santander, a city in Cantabria, in the North of Spain.
I grew in a medium-sized village called Muriedas, too close but too far from Santander which was in turn too far from everything that I liked. But I was patient and when I had a chance to leave I went to Oviedo, in Asturias, to study Art History.
In Oviedo, as well as studying my degree, meeting some of my best friends and attending a lot of music shows, I started to make fanzineis. At that time I founded my publishing house: Bombas para Desayunar.
When I finished my degree, I decided to pursue a Master in Teaching and Educationn and I realised teaching is not bad at all.
After that, I returned to Cantabria, where I'm from. I then contributed to kindle Santander's cultural liveii with my friends from Centro Cultural Eureka, organizing activities, participating in them, and, of course, making fanzines non-stop .
Life then took me to Norway: first to Flekke and later on to Bergen. There I learned to live in adverse climate conditions, with little sunlight and everything living more than a thousand kilometers from home entails. In Bergen I worked as a tourist guide, showing the city, its monuments and its history to the tourists.
Two years in Norwary were enough and with the opportunity to study a Master of Contemporary Art Histormiy and Visual Culture in the Reina Sofía Museum I didn't think twice. I packed my stuff and moved to Madrid, the place where I currently live.
